This essay, written for a festschrift for Professor Larry Alexander, considers the implications of Alexander’s rigorously intentionalist account of legal interpretation for the problem of legal and political authority. The essay argues (or so it seems) that Alexander’s hermeneutics, though persuasive, and though respectable enough in their exoteric meaning, constitute a surreptitious project aimed at producing anarchy.
